BELOIT, Wis. (AP) - Beloit police say two suspects who held up a video store are 12 years old.

Officers arrested one boy around noon on Monday. Sgt. Ed Gates says the second boy was arrested a short time later. He’s accused of spitting on an officer who was taking him into custody.

Both 12-year-olds are being held in the Rock County juvenile detention center.
